The Tooting Ambassador Group
We’re the Tooting 70/30 Ambassadors and we’re working hard to prevent child abuse and neglect in our area.
Group Coordinator: Antonella Sansone
Ambassador Since: June 2016
“What really drew me to 70/30 is its eagerness for action, the challenge to get as many people as possible involved through real interaction, and not just prospective and new parents but healthcare practitioners, local authorities, MPs, organisations, neighbours…the whole community. Parents’ and children’s wellbeing concerns the whole of society and humanity. By changing people’s mindset, getting them to see prevention as an urgent priority and not a theoretical idea, we can make a real change and the need for intervention is likely to decrease. I share the broad integrative vision and long sightedness of this campaign and the WAVE Trust, the charity which is behind it.
I am excited about the progress we have made in a short time, and this is a great motivator to do more. It is amazing how easy it has been for us ambassadors to arrange a meeting with our local MPs and for many to create local groups. in this way we can sensitise our local MPs to the importance of early and effective support and invite them to support our campaign and hopefully improve maternal and children services.”
